Since Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson married football player Andrew East back in 2016, the world has been obsessed with their adorable relationship. But the pair have just hit another incredible milestone by sharing the first pictures of their newborn son on social media.
"Welcome to the world little man! We love you so much!" Johnson East gushed.
Since the pair met back at the 2012 Olympics they've been nothing short of couple goals. They wed in an intimate ceremony in Tennessee back in 2016 and soon after announced they were pregnant with their first child. However, tragically, they miscarried - a subject Shawn has been refreshingly candid about.
"It was a time of a lot of tension because of emotion, and we didn't know how to navigate it," she admitted on the Hot Marriage. Cool Parents podcast. "I felt so sad and guilty that I had done something to lose this child."
Luckily, soon after, the pair were blessed with the birth of their first child. Drew Hazel East was born on October 29th, 2019. "It's changed our relationship in every way possible. I think it's the biggest obstacle in a marriage or relationship because you have to figure out how to keep each other first in order to both be good for her," Johnson said in the Off The Vine podcast at the time.
In spite of the challenges of parenthood, though, it was clear the two took to it like a duck to water. "given how things are going with Drew, and how much fun it is, I would love to have more. I'm in the phase right now," she told US Magazine. Andrew even joked he wanted twenty kids in total.
And it seems they were good to their word, as they announced in January that they were expecting baby number 2. "Here we go again. #babyeast," Shawn joked on Instagram. And on Tuesday, July 20th, their newborn son was delivered via C-section in hospital.
"A moment we've been excited to share," Shawn and Andrew captioned the touching footage. "Meet our perfect little baby boy. We are so in love. Momma and little man are doing really well and are healthy and happy. Drew's loving her new role as big sister and is loving her cuddle time with her little brother every day. We're in heaven and are so thankful you gave us this time to be together as a family. More details on the birth to come soon. Stay tuned."
The baby and mom are reportedly both happy and healthy, but as of yet, no name has been announced. Nevertheless, the internet is immediately obsessed with the sweet new addition to the Johnson East family, and we can't wait to see more from him!
